About Electrolysis

Since Laser Hair Removal has taken the world by storm, you don’t hear about Electrolysis (a form of permanent hair removal) as much anymore. However, there are people who may not be candidates for Laser Hair Removal and still need to go the Electrolysis route. Laser Hair Removal requires a client to have fair skin and dark hair for it to be successful. If you have fair skin and light hair or brown skin and dark hair, you may not be successful with Laser Hair Removal. However, you are a perfect candidate for Electrolysis! Electrolysis is the only form of permanent hair removal approved by the FDA. Electrolysis is used to remove hair, follicle by follicle. After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, a short-wave current is sent to the hair follicle to destroy it. The hair is then removed with tweezers. In Electrolysis at Body Restoration Spa, we use Thermolysis.

An Electrologist (one who perform Electrolysis) is hard to come these days as Laser is more common. We have a veteran in the hair removal business as our Electrologist here at Body Restoration Spa. Her name is Ala. She was an Electrologist at a well-known Electrolysis center which recently closed their Philadelphia office. Ala is here Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays. You may schedule online or call the spa to schedule with Ala.

Screen time has become an important way to work, get information, watch entertainment, and more, and it’s here to stay. Unfortunately, “tech neck” also comes along with screen time.

How the Power of Touch Brings Joy and Mindfulness into Your Life 

If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s how we need human contact. Even as the pandemic weakens and you hope your life gets back to normal, you might fear it will never be the same again.

You’re not alone in this fear. After two years of touch deprivation, isolation and mask wearing, you’re slowly emerging into a pattern of normal daily life. But, things still don’t feel right after two years of eating alone and seeing coworkers on a video screen.

You might feel detached from the people you once worked beside every day. This deepens your anxiety and loneliness. As you quarantined and practiced social distancing due to COVID, the subtle signals of touching another person faded into the background.

Touch satisfies a basic need. It’s the road to peace for your inner self. You need touch as much as you need food and exercise.

Some municipalities and businesses still have mask mandates and social distancing in place because of the Omicron variant. So, how do you get a steady dose of touch back into your life?

Massage therapy can help you decrease the negative feelings from touch starvation. It’s a safe method to nurture your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual mindfulness.

Massage for Migraine Sufferers

It’s hard to attribute a single reason to be the cause of migraines. This is because you can develop migraines from something as simple as changing your environment. Plus, even after eating the wrong food. Or owing to complicated reasons like an abnormal brain structure besides a chemical imbalance.

To date, there’s no known cure for migraines. Even so, you can minimize the concern of throbbing pain by:
